Northanger Abbey depicts the misadventures of Catherine Morland young ingenuous and mettlesome and an indefatigable reader of gothic novels Their romantic excess and dark overstatement feed her imagination as tyrannical fathers and diabolical villains work their evil on forlorn heroines in isolated settings What could be more remote from the uneventful securities of life in the midland counties of England Yet as Austen brilliantly contrasts fiction with reality ordinary life takes a more sinister turn and edginess and circumspection are reaffirmed alongside comedy and literary burlesque br Also including Austen s other short fictions Lady Susan The Watsons and Sanditon this valuable new edition shows her to be as innovative at the start of her career as at its close, a href https www goodreads com book show lady susan the watsons sanditon rel nofollow alternate cover edition a br br i She has poured forth her tender tale of love in vain and exposed herself forever to the contempt of the whole world i br br These three short works show Austen experimenting with a variety of different literary styles from melodrama to satire and exploring a range of social classes and settings The early epistolary novel i Lady Susan i depicts an unscrupulous coquette toying with the affections of several men In contrast i The Watsons i is a delightful fragment whose spirited heroine Emma Watson finds her marriage opportunities restricted by poverty and pride Written in the last months of Austen s life the uncompleted novel i Sanditon i is set in a newly established seaside resort with a glorious cast of hypochondriacs and speculators and shows the author contemplating a changing society with a mixture of scepticism and amusement br br Margaret Drabble s introduction examines these three works in the context of Jane Austen s major novels and her life and discusses the social background of her fiction This edition features a new chronology br br In it i Sanditon i she exploits her greatest gifts her management of dialogue and her skill with monologue The book feels open and modern as vigorous and inventive as her earlier work CAROL SHIELDS, It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife So begins Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen s witty comedy of manners one of the most popular novels of all time that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth century drawing room intrigues Renowned literary critic and historian George Saintsbury in declared it the most perfect the most characteristic the most eminently quintessential of its author s works and Eudora Welty in the twentieth century described it as irresistible and as nearly flawless as any fiction could be br back cover, i I never have been in love it is not my way or my nature and I do not think I ever shall i br br Beautiful clever rich and single Emma Woodhouse is perfectly content with her life and sees no need for either love or marriage Nothing however delights her more than interfering in the romantic lives of others But when she ignores the warnings of her good friend Mr Knightley and attempts to arrange a suitable match for her protegee Harriet Smith her carefully laid plans soon unravel and have consequences that she never expected With its imperfect but charming heroine and its witty and subtle exploration of relationships Emma is often seen as Jane Austen s most flawless work br br This edition includes a new chronology and additional suggestions for further reading
